Pardew: 'Blackpool Are Ahead Of Us In Fitness'
Alan Pardew has told of his relief after Papiss Cisse decided he would wear the Newcastle United shirt after all.
Alan Pardew: “It’s been resolved.
“I’m very, very pleased. Papiss is in good condition.
“It (missing the Portugal tour) isn’t going to affect him.
"I will name a strong team at Bloomfield Road, but I’m going to leave four or five players behind to work on their fitness. But it will be a strong team.
“Blackpool are two weeks away from the start of their season.
“They’re 10 days ahead of us. I think that will show. It’ll be a good test for us.”
